The actual DCU Capt. Marvel is now a behooded dark figure named Shazam. This ain't him. As part of DC's MULTIVERSITY concept, this one-off deals with a universe where a close facsimile to the original Marvel Family resides. Writer Grant Morrison cleverly manages to avoid mentioning the M word (Marvel) almost entirely while still channeling Otto Binder's original Fawcett stories, albeit with his own patented meta touch. It's a fun story on its own and yet a puzzle piece to the full scale Multiversity project. Booksteve Recommends!
